Don't be fooled by the looks . . .
If you think Dulcie is a picture of innocence, think again. She's the one who's leading the other puppies into bad ways - running off to have a go at the sheep when the rest of us are on our way back to the yard after a run.
She didn't get a chance to do it this morning, because I scooped her up and carried her home, but two of her litter mates went instead!
We have absolutely no doubt that Dulcie and her friends are going to be wonderful sheepdogs - in fact, I can barely wait to start training them. The whole litter seem to be very courageous and hell-bent on chasing sheep at the moment. Long may their strong herding instinct prevail. We'll keep you posted with the progress of Dulcie and the other puppies as their training progresses. (Please leave comments if you'd like to).
